a big talker this morning. that's what florida senator marco rubio is discussing. >> telling bill o'reilly what problems he sees with the president's plan and why he doesn't think the plan won't work. >> it doesn't work pore nanfor y of the reasons you pointed out in the talking points memo. washington, d.c. had a similar gun ban. violent crime and murder sky rocketed in washington during the time of the bans. i am a concealed weapons permit in florida. i had to have a background check and be finger printed. >> you don't object to registering the gun, you don't object to background check on you. >> sure. that's the law in florida. we have something called 2010 life. if a crime is committed in position of a gun it's mandatory 10 years. if you use that gun you are away for life even the first time you commit that. what's happened is these criminals that use guns are in jail. >> rubio telling o'reilly he thinks the president's proposal was a greater indication of his opinion toward the second amendment. >> again, do you think the president is dom goggi demagogu the issue, states rights
issing problematic for a couple of reasons, but primarily because it doesn't work. >> senator marco rubio's instant opposition is not about raising taxes on the wealthy, like last year. nor is it about proposing to raise the tax cuts. this time the issue is gun safety, including universal background checks supported by nearly nine out of ten americans. the president, once again, is taking his message to the people. as did he with _#$40. >> i promise you the american people, your voices, made a difference on this debate zoosh as he did with _#my2k. >> if there's one thing that i have learned, when the american people speak loudly enough, lo and behold, congress listens. >> yesterday the white house launched _#now is the time. >> this will not happen unless the american people demand it. >> the president has a new website explaining the proposed laws. he penned an op ed in the connecticut post today, and he is planning to hit the road to sell his plan with speeches around the country. as the white house tries to engage the public, senate majority leader harry reid will try to engage the sen
. there are republicans like marco rubio and others who are speaking out about this because the republican party has to demonstrate that it has broad appeal. martha: ric chris wallace tphoeupbs mnow, anchor. i want to talk to you a little bit about the immigration issue. when i hear about marco rubio and see when he's working on now, you can't help but look forward. he had this idea about immigration before the president came out with his plan and mitt romney had ten opportunity to sign onto it. now condoleezzaa rice seems to be saying, we have to learn some lessons from the last election, the g.o.p. does in terms of how they treat this issue. >> absolutely. i mean look at the exit polls, 71% of hispanics, hiss are the fastest growing demographic to america and 71% of them voted for obama. back eight years prior to that in 2004 george w. bush got 44% of hispanics. romney continue even get 30%. that is the difference in a state like florida, and a a bunch much other states around the country. republicans have got to find way to say to hispanics that we are on your side, we welcome you, value you, and
. the assault weapons has nothing to do with handguns. not only that, senator marco rubio says it simply will not work because criminals always figure a way to get a gun in their hands. >> not just chicago. washington, d.c. had a very similar gun ban and it didn't work. violent crime and murder skyrocketed in washington during the time of those bans. i'm a concealed weapons permit holder in florida. that means i had to have a background check, be finger printed, take a gun safety course. >> you don't object to any of that? >> no. >> you don't object to registering the gun, you don't object to a background check on you? you think that's good? >> that's the law in florida. we have 1020 life. if a crime is committed in possession of a life it's a mandatory 10 years, if you pull out the gun a mandatory 20 years. these criminals are in jail. >>steve: senator rubio will be kwroeupbg -- joining us. >>brian: a terror group is holding at least a dozen people hostage including seven americans. >> here's what the latest is. the algerian army is surrounding a gas facility where hostages are being he
. >> i think they can go a long time. >> great. >> marco rubio, who is emerging as sort of a -- i guess what republicans would like to see is a moderate standard bearer for the party, the face of the future just came out with a statement and says the president is abusing his power in reaction to the comments he made. >> abusing his power how? >> this is also an old gop playbook, by the way, abuse of power and impeachment, right? >> i want to know how much this argument and the lines are established within the republican party and democratic party, how much that informs the republicans going forward. if they can't get anything done in the wake of newtown, how optimistic are we they are going to get anything done on immigration, let alone, you know, energy reform? >> i think they know there is a -- an image problem and an identity crisis happening. but that's absolutely right. it's not just about this, it's everything after this. this debate is going to be long and drawn out. this is just the start. we're going to move on very soon to talk about the debt ceiling, and it's going to be -- w
, marco rubio, rand paul, ted cruz are right out there front in opposing president obama on gun safety. so what happened? why is the gop, the party of guns over people? our guests are congresswoman carolyn mccarthy, a democrat of new york, and cynthia tucker, a pulitzer prize winning columnist. thank you both for joining us. you have been in this fight for so long, congresswoman mccarthy. i have to ask you, is there something out there in the water that's changed or are we confronting the old power of the nra? >> well, certainly we are confronting them. we'll always be able to confront them, but this time is different, and i think that the american people are realizing on how radical they actually are. you know, when you see the polls in most people in america support on what we're trying to do, even nra members, so that this time is different. i think it's a combination of the gun violence that we have seen over the last couple years, but what happened in connecticut, that went over the top. we had a hearing yesterday afternoon, and i have to tell you, victims that i have been working wit
themselves for an immigration debate marco rubio focused intently on the year 2016 and it has been pushing the outlines of an imgraugs reform plan. while rubio may be making headway outside washington, he has yet to win over the raucus house caucus where the water is, indeed, choppy. the newly appointed chairman of the house immigration subcommittee is south carolina republican trey gowdy, a fast and furious devoteee who co-sponsored a bill entitled the prohibiting back door amnesty act, supported arizona's highly controversial immigration law, and received an a-minus rating from numbers usa, a group dedicated to reducing the number of immigrants entering the united states. joining the panel now is the new yorker's nick baumgartem. i read the names of those scintillating sim posa, and i wonder as we talk about the gop 2.0 or 7.0 or whatever it rags you choose to believe this is, are you convinced that this is anything more than rhetoric? i really don't mean to be baiting the witness. do you believe that the gop wants to change, can change, will change? >> it really does sound like some cro
immigration? what would you like to see happen? marco rubio on the republican side has already laid out his plan. what's your reaction to what rubio is propose and what you want to see come out of the white house? >>. >> he loud a path to citizenship for dreamers, and i think that's essential. andrea, i think the main debate will be about legalization and specifically how do you legalize folks. you can have everything from guest and residenty, and that will be the debate in congress in the coming year. >> coming up, are you also going to be faced almost immediately with the whole crisis over the debt ceiling. not house has been holding really firm. what do you think about coming into this partisan divide coming up here in congress? >> well, i mean, i hope to be part of a freshman class and a group of folks in congress who can take care of the finances and systems without creating more self-inflicted wounds. we know that last time we went through this it hurt the stock market nationally. it hurt our bond ratings. we have to create something that doesn't create this self-inflicted wound every
that plays into republican arguments like marco rubio who said this today on fox. >> there is a second amendment. i didn't write the constitution. i believe in it. if you are going to do anything that impacts it. it better make some sense. here is the problem that i have by the president's own admission, the things that they're putting forward would have done nothing to prevent what happened, for example, in connecticut. >> and that's why top democratic senator is telling me privately he thinks it's much more likely that the president will not get a ban on assault weapons. but, instead, will get something that's less controversial like a national background check, having a system like that. that's more likely to go through, bill. >> bill: ed, thank you. ed henry at the white house tonight. victims and first responders have returned to the scene of the massacre in colorado. this after almost six months after a man opened fire inside of a crowded movie theater there they were attending a private ceremony at this hour. that includes the showing of a movie inside the very same building whe
, senator bilbo. marco rubio last night accused the president of not believing in the second amendment. here is a guy clearly running for president. let's take a look. >> i actually think the president, and he just doesn't have the guts to admit it, isn't a believer in the second amendment. the second amendment is in the constitution. i didn't write the constitution. neither did you, neither did he. if he doesn't want the second amendment to be in the constitution or if he wants to reform the second amendment, have the guts to admit that. >> congresswoman mccarthy, what's this -- where is this talk coming from, this street corner lingo, guts, guys getting together, guts, the president has the guts. a little respect might be in order for the president of the united states from this guy, talking about a guy not having guts. it's street corner talk from rubio. your thoughts. we're talking about guns here. >> we're talking about guns here, yes, but we all swear to uphold the constitution. i believe in upholding the constitution. the supreme court already came out that a person has a right to own
on guns. and the nominees are... senator marco rubio for saying the executive orders have nothing to do with newtown because "this is stuff they've always wanted to do and now this has created the political climate to pursue it." he's confusing exploiting a tragedy with exploiting the next one. governor rick perry for saying "laws the only redoubt of secularism will not suffice. let's return to our place of worship and pray for help." finally, mike levine for saying there are certain things in an executive order that are un-american. in some ways, they're even -- proving his listeners can't look up what a fascism really means. quickie goes to -- governor rick perry for suggesting we should stop wasting our time passing laws and instead pray it away. governor perry couldn't be here tonight because he has a previous engagement. he's traveling and oops. but we want to accept this award on his behalf and thank him for making george w. bush look like socrates. we'll be right back. hey, i'm joey aragon. see that film? people call me about this every day. my dishwasher must be broken. you k
here get citizenship. host: where is that coming from? guest: marco rubio is an important player from florida. he is a cuban-american and he has put forth a plan that would provide citizenship under strict circumstances for people who came to the country illegally. that is pretty big and house republicans have their own plan, some members are putting forward similar plans. obama has his own plan that we will hear about so and then that will look lot like what democrats, with a few more years ago and it is more liberal and is less likely that democrats will embrace that. the fact that both sides are talking about it suggests there is a possibility they could come together and do something within this next congress -- in this next congress behind immigration. republicans did not very do well in this election with the hispanic. they feel like they cannot completely abandon hispanics. they need to show they have some empathy for folks who are here illegally. host: when you look at the line of the senate, you of marco rubio and you have jeff lake, republican from arizona, and you have more
marco rubio. >> by the own admission of the white house, what they have proposed to do would do nothing to have prevented what happened in connecticut or colorado before that or any of these other places where this has occurred. i actually think the president and doesn't have the guts to admit it, is not a believer in the second amendment. >> the white house is also up against the nra, which is raising money. e-mailing support, to upgrade their membership to prepare for, quote, the fight of the century. barack obama, joe biden and their gun ban allies in it congress only want to blame you, vilify you, bully you and strip you of your second amendment freedoms. nra president david keen made these slippery slope argument that has become all too familiar from them. this morning on the "today" show. >> you get into the sort of bidding match. they say we shouldn't have a 30-round magazine or 20-round. the president says let's have a ten. the governor of new york says well, i can top that, we'll have a seven-round magazine. >> but did the nra go too far by invoking president obama's daughters,
on the hill. what we see is a lot of immigration reform and bipartisan, marco rubio introduced his plan endorsed by representative paul ryan in the house. seeing a build between the house and republicans, between the house republican, excuse me, and the senate democrats, on immigration reform. that's a ticket item we could definitely see him pass. >> house republican, senate democrats. here's the deal, amy. when the president started out four years ago, he controlled, democrats had control of both houses. so how much does that change his approach to trying to check off this wish list? it's not that way anymore. >> no, it's not. compromise is the name of the game. he's seeing that republicans want to compromise on certain issues. with gun control, you're hearing certain republicans talk about background checks. a willingness to do that, also some parts of immigration. i don't know if it's going to be some grand, sweeping deal, but, you know, republicans suffering a loss with the hispanic vote want to see that happen. i think if they can find middle ground on these issues he can have a su
a talk that maybe immigration reform is a place there could be common ground. you heard marco rubio in the senate, paul ripe in the house, and maybe we can have like george w. bush, a republin vision that had legal status and maybe even citizenship for those in this country illegally, ballpark number about 10 million. would a tea party member like you support that? in the past, you've called that amnesty. >> that would be real hard for me, and i defined amnesty, and not many have because they want the broader definition when it's convenient. to grant amnesty is to pardon immigration law breakers and reward them with the objective of their crime. if that's what this bill does, it would fit the definition of amnesty. >> could your speaker survive if he allowed that bill to come to the floor of the house of representatives? >> i think we'd want to look at the language on that. john boehner's tone and his body language and everything i heard him say at the retreat in williamsburg, he and our leadership team was all about how we pull our conference together and work together. i don't thi
, on immigration reform, which is another subject close to your heart. you saw marco rubio, the senator from florida's proposals, are you on board with him? >> he's making progress. i salute him for that. he's got the courage to taken o his own caucus and say, we need comprehensive immigration reform. we need a pathway for citizenship. there's probably a difference of opinion on how long it takes to earn that legalized pathway to citizenship. but it's a great start. i'm looking forward to a partner, senator mccain, lin graham and now marco rubio joining the very important debate and the conversation about how we fix this broken immigration system. >> you're going to have an alliance with lindsey graham, senator mccain and senator rubio, you might get some comprehensive immigration reform. >> i hope so. >>> tasteless or tribute? up next, we have some information on the growing controversy behind the very unlikely pairing of fashion models with the superstorm sandy first responders.

important one is marco rubio, who was not only of hispanic origin, but also younger and can appeal to this whole dreamers movement, and he is right here in washington serving in congress and drafting legislation and working on a bipartisan basis. there is also a large number of democrats and republicans who, while we don't hear about it, are working behind the scenes, like lindsey graham and charles schumer, on putting some kind of legislation out there. certainly bush, he decided to step forward, could play a constructive role. it is not like he is going to let democrats just because he decided to put himself out there on the issue. it would only help in terms of bringing republicans on board. host: we are awaiting the luncheon, which will be wrapping up shortly, and we will hear from the speaker of the house, as well as the president, and at truck schumer, lamar alexander comedy cochairs of the joint congressional committee -- and chuck schumer, lamar alexander, the cochairs of the joint congressional committee on the inauguration. there was a sense of bipartisanship, at least to
, not necessarily become citizens, but say here legally. host: where is that coming from? caller: marco rubio has put forward a plan that has put on the table but that decision. that is pretty big, and house republicans have their own plans. now, president obama has his own plan that we will hear about sin and that will look like a lot like the plan that democrats cannot with a few years ago, and it is less likely that democrats will embrace that. side is that eatch talking about it suggests to me that they can come together in the next congress, and one of the big reasons is the political ones. republicans did not do very well in this election and they felt like if they were able to do better in this group they would have a better chance of winning. they feel like that they cannot completely abandon hispanics. a huge issue. host: when you look at the lineup of the senate, you have marked rubio putting up legislation, and then jeff flake from arizona, and more democrats as well. guest: the politics are changing fundamentally and quickly. republicans work really shaken up by the demographics of th
in time. host: here is a snapshot of politifact's website. we see senator marco rubio being examined. also, phil gingrey in georgia. saul, from new york, on the independent line. caller: since 2008, when john mccain was running for president, republicans have been claiming that if they raise the capital gains taxes, which obama wanted to do, and dividends taxes 15%, that is going to hurt people and retirement plans. they have been scary people that way. elderly people right -- they have been scaring people that way. elie people right now, on their 401 k, everybody knows that when you take money out of the retirement plan, you pay ordinary income taxes. you don't get the 15% tax break that rich people get when they have been outside the retirement plan. nobody has been saying anything about it. no news media, no politicians, no democrats. i would like to hear what he says about that. guest: sure, saul. we have done a lot of fact checks on claims about taxes, and i would interview to go to our website, politifact.com, and -- ifnder truth-o-meter it is a factual claim, we will check it. where

with the sweeping new gun control proposals they say released yesterday. republican senator marco rubio says the newt town shooting gave mr. obama the political footing he needed to take on gun rights in america. here is with bill o'reilly on the factor last night. >> i think this is what he wanted to do with his entire political career. he uses opportunity to do it and use every rhetorical device to do it. >> does he think banning assault weapons will stop mass murder? >> i think he believes that. the president doesn't have guts to say it doesn't believe in the second amendment. the second amendment is in the constitution. i didn't write the constitution. neither did you. neither did he. if he doesn't want the second amendment to be in the constitution have the guts to admit that. bill: there is lot of reaction. monica crowley, radio talk show host, doug cone, former advisor to president bill clinton. morning to both of you. what do you think about what senator rubio said about the president and second amendment. >> there is lot of wariness and caution on the republican side. they are worri
the senate, but he's not making any promises. florida republican senator marco rubio on "fox & friends" this morning says the president doesn't understand the second amendment. >> there's a second amendment. i didn't write the constitution. it's in there, and i believe in it. and so if you are going to do anything that impacts it, it better make some sense. and here's the problem that i have. by the president's own admission, the things they're putting forward would have done nothing to prevent what happened, for example, in connecticut. i've got four children, i've got my own four children, and i'm deeply worried about this. like everyone, i was outraged about what happened in connecticut. i'm for anything that would prevent horrible things like this from happening again. but this is not about guns, this is about violence. and what we really should be focused on is what is creating this violence in our culture. >> reporter: republicans also blame the mental health system for failing to keep guns out of the hands of people who shouldn't have them, but they've criticized mr. obama's cal
't. >> stephanie: senator marco rubio. >> i think the president is not a believer in the second amendment. if he doesn't want the second amendment to be in the constitution, or wants to reform it, then have guts to admit that. >> stephanie: how many times can the president say he believes in the second amendment. the fact that he did nothing but expand the second amendment in his first term -- >> because they live in an alternate universe who say everything he does is the opposite of what he is going to do. >> stephanie: yep. and david king nra president yesterday. >> we're powerful to the extent that we are, use there are millions and millions of americans who truly care about second amendment issues. >> but nobody is threatening to take away your gun. >> stephanie: i know. >> unless you are a crazy person, then, yes. but those are the people we are targeting, and it's with evidence. >> stephanie: who watched lance and oprah last night. >> i watched the first 20 minutes of it. >> stephanie: all right. we have crunchy audio goodness and we'll get jacki's take as we continue
to comprehensive immigration reform, i think the president can work with senator marco rubio. but what about on climate change? what about same-sex marriage? is there going to be cooperation in those two areas? >> number one, on same-sex marriage, the president hasn't thrown any weight behind legislation or for repealing the legislation that paul's because, bill's boss signed the defense of marriage act. >> the justice department -- let me interrupt. the justice department is no longer defending the defense of marriage act. >> and it's going to go to a supreme court case as well and that's probably when we'll find out the future of that. the initiative in play that prompted many of the questions. wolf, i think the real key thing here and we'll hear about this today was speaker boehner. one of the changes now is it's time for the senate to lead. on climate change, let harry reid to see if they can do something. it's their turn. let the senate pass a budget. on guns, i'd be interested to see if they can pass a an obama-style coalition to do what the president is asking for. that's a big change
